A ton of new information regarding Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash has been revealed by Nintendo and the guys over at GameXplain.
First off, Wario, Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Daisy, Waluigi, Boo, and Rosalina have been confirmed to be playable characters in the game. There will also be more playable characters joining as well, but there is no information regarding what other characters will be playable.
Next, Four modes have been confirmed for the game, which are listed below:
- Knockout Challenge: Tense tiebreak matches against increasingly difficult computer-controlled opponents await in this single-player mode.
- Mega Battle: Your character grows to gigantic proportions after grabbing a Mega Mushroom, dominating the court with their increased power and range. When rivals on both sides of the net are giant-sized, anything can happen!
- Classic Tennis: For those who prefer their tennis a little more traditional, Classic Tennis offers two variations: Standard mode features Chance Shots and Jump Shots but no Mega Mushrooms, while Simple puts competitors between the tramlines with no Chance Shots or power-ups – a real test of tennis prowess.
Not only that, but the game will also have amiibo support! Tapping a compatible amiibo to the Wii U gamepad will spawn in a second play based the figure tapped in, and you can train that amiibo while you’re playing along side it and save it’s progress on the figure too! You can use it in almost every type of mode, including online! Unfortunately, theres no information about what amiibo are compatible right now, but hopefully we’ll find out soon.
And on top of that, the game will have online multiplayer and can play almost every single mode online. You can even have another player play with you locally on rhe same console and play doubles online with that person!
Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is releasing at a MSRP of $49.99 on November 20th, 2015 in North America.
